Inauguration: No Strollers, No Umbrellas, No Lasers

imageWashington DC continues to be a fun-free zone. The inauguration “Do Not Bring” list is growing, and now includes:

• Strollers (the hard plastic frame is a no-no). • Umbrellas (hard plastic again). • Backpacks and large camera cases (could conceal naughty things).

• Signs and posters (ruins the wide crowd shots). • Laser pointers (annoying, plus ruin close-ups, plus may allow long-range targeting robot drones). • Thermoses and coolers (they want you to starve so you go home early).

Weather predictions are calling for a sweet 37 degrees and possible rain, and DC officials warn that attendees will be expected to stand for several hours in the cold. How you like your change now, Obama fans?
